“Return to Babbacombe”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Beautiful sea front with great pub (Cary Arms) at Oddicombe Beach . Enjoyed best fish and chips (al fresco...not done this in years) from Hanburys. Walked back along coastal path to hotel in Torquay in glorious warm sunshine - all in March! Can't beat it!

nice and quiet at Babbacombe could be a better bus service like the Brixham to Newton Abbot number 12 every 10 minutes

“Nice place to walk around, shops & bars”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

We walked around Babbacombe with the usual 'chain' shops and unusual bars. Nice views and gardens.
